The group’s vision is to nurture the links between creativity and innovation at the interface of consumers, the creative industries, cultural institutions, research, education and the public sectors:
- It will promote the importance of creativity and the creative industries and the impact they have on other sectors among European institutions as well as at local and regional level.
The group provides advice to European and local policy makers and acts as a knowledge hub – connecting interests, experts and initiatives across Europe.
Participants will be enabled to create synergies between their activities and interests in Brussels. They will be able to speak with a more powerful and unified voice, make joint consultations submissions and prepare joint project proposals.
The group may eventually enable its partners to take a more active part the 2009 Year of Creativity and Innovation, which has just recently been announced by the European Commission.
The network could also be used to disseminate the results of several creative industries related project results and create links between different initiatives.
